* Although our published prize rules say that no player may be awarded more than one prize, we also reserve the right to vary this if it would result in a fairer distribution of prizes. In this case, these two were the only junior players in the section. Had they not recieved the prize between them, it could not have been awarded at all.

* Our published prize rules say that no player may be awarded more than one prize. As such, while listed amongst those finishing in 3rd place, Peter Stone and Sophie Hughes instead receive the higher value prizes listed elsewhere. At the prize giving, we said that Oliver Ferris won a rating prize. In fact he should not have been eligible for this as his rating at the time of the event was a “P” (Partial) rating. The rating prize therefore goes to Peter Stone, who can’t have two prizes, and the junior prize, of the same value, then goes to Oliver.
Chess.com membership prizes and Chess.co.uk vouchers.
The prizes mentioned below are £50 eVouchers for chess.co.uk and chess.com memberships at diamond level. Because these cannot be shared we have used tie-breaks to distribute the prizes when players have the same score. The tie-breaks used were head-to-head result, the number of wins and Buchholz (roughly the sum of opponents’ scores).
Allocating these prizes can take some time due to needing to collect chess.com membership details. Any winner not wishing to take up their prize can allocate it to a friend, or ask us to award it to another player of our choosing.
